New Approach to Veteran Homelessness

Posted by on in News
A tsunami of homeless veterans is on the way Perhaps the most critical issue facing US veterans right now is homelessness. Currently, 69 % of our homeless veterans are over the age of 31.

This is worsening quickly with the current 1.2 million man reduction of our Armed Forces going on right now. A tsunami of homeless veterans is on the way. It is inevitable. And if the economy worsens, it will be a...

Why Celebrate “Memorial Day?”

Posted by on in News
Memorial Day 2015: Why? What Does it mean? Since 9/11/01 America has lost over 10,000 Americans, 8,000+ of these citizens were those that volunteered to join the US military after that heinous attack. On May 25, 2015 we will all share a responsibility and a duty to honor these beloved men and women of our nation. Unlike “Veterans Day” that honors all US veterans, Memorial Day is dedicated to those who have given their lives while in US military service. It is a day of remembrance for their sacrifices. It is the least that we as a nation can do. The...

Helping Homeless Veterans

Posted by on in News
Victor in the right of this picture used to have a good job. But when the company he worked for downsized in 2008 he was laid off. Due to his age he was unable to find another job. Now, he fishes everyday for his food. But recently his gear was stolen. Our homeless mission received a donation and bought Victor new poles, reels and tackle. Too many of our US veterans have fallen through the cracks of society. Some live in chronic pain that prevents them from working; some are emotionally and or mentally wounded; but most are good men and...

Celebrate Easter Every Day!

Posted by on in Interesting
We are all born selfish. It is this survival instinct to seek our own self-interests that runs the world politics and economy. Look where that attitude has gotten us. Our world is full of war, death, poverty, hunger and suffering. Our ecology is dying because of our narcissism. And with nuclear weapons, we are always on the brink of annihilation. One has to be blind, deaf and a dunce not to realize the way we are running the world is not working. And yet, every day we continue doing “business as usual.” There are two ways of living in this world...

A Combat Veteran's Struggle

Posted by on in News
I met this tall and imperious US combat veteran at Saddleback Church: The mega- church created by Rick Warren, the author of the best seller A Purpose Filled Life. I began attending the church’s veterans meetings. The veteran who took me there was Greg, a three tour Vietnam War Army veteran. He was well over six feet tall and had a prophet’s beard. Greg had lived in trash dumpsters since his honorable discharge in 1973. He lived for just one reason when he returned ‘home’ to the States: to stay drunk. The police knew Greg well. As a courtesy, every Christmas...

The Lawrences were downsizing and selling their home and chose the Atrium( a holiday retirement community) because of its wonderful staff, beautiful building and amenities. Even at age 90, Mr. Lawrence proved to be a capable Mover, lifting items despite our insistence that he relax. A little background:   The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American Air Force pilots to serve in World War II. At 90,  Sgt. Stephen Lawrence recalls with great...
